Protect Your Smile With Dental Sealants

At Battle Creek Family Dentistry in Springfield, we know that dental sealants can be a great way for patients to protect and preserve their molars and premolars.

What are dental sealants and how are they applied?

Sealants are made from a mixture of ceramic and plastic materials and applying them is easy and painless. We start by cleaning the tooth surface and drying it. The sealant is then applied to each tooth before being hardened with a special curing light.

What are the pros of dental sealants?

Dental sealants provide protection from both decay and cavities. They form a protective barrier over your enamel to prevent bacteria from entering and causing damage. They are also very easy to apply, and the entire process is quick and comfortable.

How long do dental sealants last?

Sealants can last for up to 10 years with proper care. We recommend returning for regular checkups and cleanings to ensure that the sealant is intact and properly protecting your teeth.

Who is a candidate for dental sealants?

Patients of all ages who have a high risk of developing cavities should consider asking us about having dental sealants applied to the molars and premolars.
